Pours a bright and effervescent golden color with amble carbonation. Light on the nose with some green apples and lemons. The scents do not intesify much even as this warms a tad. Starts off with a nice tingly sensation of green apples and citrus. This stays constant throughout the entire tasting. On the very back end, there is some underlying vanilla cream flavor. This has a nice medium body with able acidity. Very refreshing.

One of the finest sparkling wines made in the United States. With its inviting, open-knit quality, its citrus and tropical fruit aromas, and its subtle framework of vanilla and toasty spice notes, this is simply irresistible.

2007, it seems, was a quite good year for Schramsberg, and this brisk, almost austere Blanc de Blancs joins the winery's Blanc de Noirs and Rosé in winning very high marks. It is less a stand-alone quaffer and more a taut, acid-edged wine that wants ... Connoisseurs' Guide. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2007 Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs Vintage 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

The Schramsberg style of Blanc de Blancs is dry and crisp. Small lots of malolactic- and barrel-fermented wines are added for complexity. The wine is aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for over two years prior to disgorgement. With its vibrant, fruitful and crisp nature, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years, even decades following its initial release.

Tasting Notes:

“Fruitful aromas of fresh lime and Granny Smith apple, accentuated by nuances of juicy pineapple and lemon grass, are complimented by notes of honeycomb and hazelnut from the years of aging en tirage. On the palate, the 2008 Blanc de Blancs enters crisp and tangy, unfolding with flavors of lime, pineapple and exotic tropical fruits. Delicious and layered flavors of lemon custard and fresh-from-the-oven brioche follows. The palate finishes with a delicate sweetness and a generous acidity that is long and quenching.” – Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
